Before leaving Annapolis we enjoyed an evening out with Tommy and Amy of Sail Away Catamarans. We went to a little Honduran restaurant ‘Sin Fernandos’. We all had delicious margaritas with our food, and I definitely had one too many. Wasn’t sick, but happy the ride back to the dingy was short.
The week before we left Paul also made a quick trip to Canada to take care of a few things. We rented a car before he left so I could drop him at the airport and pick him up. While he was gone I took advantage of the car and began the provisioning. Each day I would dinghy ashore and go shopping and running other errands like filling the propane tanks. I also took Charlie to his favorite park for a long walk each day. I had everything restocked and stowed before Paul got back. We then returned the rental car and got ourselves ready to depart the South River by refueling and topping off the water tanks.
We departed on Sunday, October 26th around 9am and had a gusty but quick trip to Solomon’s on the Patuxant River arriving at 3:30pm. It was a nice quiet anchorage for the night.
We left Solomon’s at 7am the following morning and mostly motor sailed to Deltaville for another overnight. By this time Charlie is wondering why we aren’t going ashore at any of our stops. Not to worry, next stop Hampton and a play date with Zoe from Sapphire.
Arrived in Hampton at 2pm on Tuesday, October 28th. Refueled and settled ourselves in on the dock in order to enjoy the Salty Dawg Rally events. Charlie was so excited to get off the boat. We immediately went for a walk and found Zoe. The two of them had a nice romp. Even though they hadn’t seen each other for over 5 months, they definitely did not forget each other. Happy dogs.
